    • r^2 is the coefficient of determination (the percentage of variance that is shared by the two variables that are correlated)
  4. boggy endfeel, felt when?
    fluid within joints, such as blood

    (not with an absess -- that'll give an empty end feel)

  12. dyspnea and the pink, frothy sputum would suggest the presence of
    heart failure and resultant pulmonary edema
  13. knowledge of results and random practice pattern -->
    long term retention

    knowledge of performance may give faster acquisition, but not retention

  23. purpose of continuous passive motion machine
    • increase ROM
    • (nothing about DVTs or length of stay in hospital, or even contractures)

    • indicates lunate dislocation
  28. watson test
